More ripe fruit on the nose and on the palate. Similar tire and smoke quality. Pepper dialed down. A bit juicer in general but some balancing wet rock and some roasted pepper. Definitely a bit more complete than Corte C, but less my style. So much cherry.

Big wine at 15.1% abv which was pretty well integrated. The color was clear and violet. The flavor lacked the complexity and concentration of the #corte #a The wine was overwhelmed by notes of freshly kneaded and rising bread. Interesting but not exciting #bodegavistalba #argentina #malbec #blend

My crockpot enchilada soup is spicy and perfect for this rain-soaked evening. Paired with this beautiful wine from Argentina. It's soft red fruit flavors stood up to the heat, and melded perfectly. So glad my wine closet showed it to me.

Black fruit, chocolate and cocoa. M tannin and M+ acid. A pretty big wine.

Deep ruby color. Earthy aromas of sage, lavender, leather, tobacco, and dried plums. Medium + body, medium + tannins, with additional flavors of sweet fruitcake, cherry, and brandy. Medium + finish, with lots of room to improve with bottle age. Such a powerful expression of what Argentina does best!
